Lets unmask the confusion about masks

"I'm fought macedo. Sitting in for jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jennifer mcdonald is a doctor physical medicine and rehabilitation in ottawa. And is one of the five hundred signatories on a letter calling federal and provincial governments to seriously address the aerosol transmission of covid nineteen. Hi dr mcdonald. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me so. I'm really curious about how this letter came about. Can you tell us a little more. Would its goals are and what the purpose was of writing and sending it to all the governments sure so it came about actually for me on my end. I was actually on maternity leave. And was reading up on the science of covid nineteen transmission and notice that there was quite a bit of controversy even between a leading experts and wanted to see more interdisciplinary collaboration. So as a rehabilitation doctor we are experts in interdisciplinary collaboration. And i thought while i am by no means an expert in nineteen i could bring my expertise in that collaborative approach to bring these disciplines and hopefully come to some sort of consensus on the science of transition. So that's how we got writing this letter and bringing these people together. We have doctors. Relevant scientists occupational health and safety experts as well as engineers as a part of the team. We're sort of like a loose coalition all with interest in promoting this route of transmission which is air assault or airborne transmission. So that was the goal of the is to ask our country as a whole as well as each province to better acknowledged the importance of aerosol transmission as well as to implement appropriate measures to combat it so clearly. This wasn't happening because you had to write about it. I i noted in the in the letter that you you mentioned or all signatories mentioned that international scientists came together to i bring up this issue. In july of twenty twenty and yet nothing has been done in canada since and the public's understanding of transmission seems to have become murkier and honestly more confusing. So i'm wondering if you can explain how the virus is transmitted is it. Airborne is transmitted through aerosols. And and what's the difference really Yes and i think that's kind of the heart of the issue is that term airborne and it's very contentious amongst some experts in public health as well as infection prevention and control. They reserve that term for diseases that have ironclad proof that they transmit through the air at very far distances in after a long period of time so an example is musil's that We have proof that it can be transmitted between faraway rooms and if a person left that room in that someone else came in an hour later they would get infected so basically the they're not wanting to use that term to describe covid nineteen since we know that in the majority of cases people are getting transmitted at close contact so when they are With somebody close to them so in terms of how covid nineteen can be transmitted. There's sort of three modes that we hear about in. That's full night's droplets and airborne or aerosol transmission so in terms of how someone can get infected by code nineteen truffaut mites. That would be if an example of that would be you. Wipe your eyes. You have copa. Nineteen and then you shake someone's hand and then that person wipes their ira reps their nose and they get infected So that's off. We focused on hand hygiene now. Interestingly full might trent full night's transmission is not found to be the main mechanism. And that's actually recognized by most of the big public health bodies that yes it's likely important but it's not the main issue so then we get to droplets and aerosols so you can think of a large droplet at transmission as a large saliva canon ball or spitball coming at you and basically that's protected from the person off when they're coughing or sneezing and would land on your eye or on your mouth and therefore Make entry into your body. And infect those cells in the nose or mouth or is in the upper respiratory tract and the thought is over time. It might migrate down into down into the lungs causing more dangerous viral pneumonia. What has been ignored in medicine. I must as dr. I was not taught about this. Possibility is the idea of aerosols being important at close ranges well so a good example is to think of smoke and if someone smoking and you're standing next to them and they breathe a big plume of smoke directly in your face while you're gonna inhale quite a bit of that smoke in it's coined probably to make you cough and turn your head away. So imagine aerosol says smoke and they're going to be most concentrated when you're close together so eric. Short range aerosol transmission or airborne transmission at close contact with. Someone is still an important vote of transmission. It's not really being discussed. And so basically the difference between airborne and air assault is more semantics. Actually i think it's actually easier if we use the term airborne to describe it 'cause the public that makes sense to

The Ideal Nutrition And How To Use Supplements

"Hi chris welcome to twenty minutes it s. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah can you start off by telling us a little bit more about your background. And what aesthetic. Greens is about sure muslims. Chris i'm originally from new zealand. Which left me with the monica north. America of chris deke end. I am the proud founder and ceo of a company called athletic greens. This company was originally formed out of a search for a solution to my own problem. Which was that. I wasn't absorbing neutrons properly. And i ended up basically going on a journey to sort of addressing health problems that led to a clinic in phoenix spending a ton of money doing every blood stool saliva test. You can possibly imagine to have a group very smart people. Tell me that look You just don't appear to be absorbing nutrients properly which was a shock to me. Because up until that time. I thought i'd been doing pretty much everything right as it related to. How approach health nutrition and how it approach supplementation and sort of led me to the drawing board to think through an rethink through everything. I thought i knew about nutrition and health and everything else so long story short. I'm customer number. One of what has become a very popular way of removing the fiction from covering nutritional basis every day without cornerstone product grains which. I'm excited to be a part of and we've of lawrence two thousand nine two thousand ten. The proper film launch early two thousand eleven and since then have gone through fifty directions to continually. Look at how can we deliver what. Wait what we consider to be. Sort of that premium. Bist centralist approach to cover nutritional basis every day. Love it so. Tell me more about why. Your body couldn't absorb nutrients well enough. We'll so i have a background. In health and exercise. I studied sport science degree at open university. Which i dropped out of with two classes to go to stop my first business. I'm an entrepreneur through through and have just kicked this lifelong passion around health and fitness. And i was falling. What's considered the nineteen ten approach which was basically. Look if you do everything right. Non-extendible time the other ten percent meta too much and i'd had a few significant number of sort of respiratory tract fictions over the years and the committed to grow infrequency took that i was taking antibiotics for something three to four times a week. And i think. I had a couple of different Forces all collide at once. But at the end of the day i had very few good. Bacteria had a really torn up gi system. And i was eating very significant levels of both protein in a variety of vegetables and supplementing. With what i thought at the time was a great multivitamin and i ended up finding that i was in the eighth to twelfth percentile on a lot of the central bottoms as minerals and even mino- essence. And so when these guys came back from that testing and said hey digital's none of them. Why this right. We have some of these minerals in the twelfth percentile I was really shocked. And just turn out have all sorts of problems traditionally with the gut and the solution from these guys was to say. Look west put you on a basic limitation diet and they gave me at the time one hundred dollars a day customized my blood bike in st nutrition regime. And like i said. I saw two vessels taking fifty horse stalls a day and i just realized it must be a better way so this way back then led me on this journey to seek out experts on. I never claimed to be the sort of exit decide. Look at what good nutrition really was and start to understand things like what got health what is by ability y generally do you wanna get nutrition nutrients as much as possible from food. What food quality is some of these other dynamics at the lead me on a journey that led to us creding athletic rim. Yeah i mean you believe that you can achieve your best self. without nurturing. Your body with writing attrition right so in your opinion then after you've talked to all those experts what the right nutrition look like for me. I think for every human. There's a couple of different pieces. And i think we all want to cover off most basic nutrient basis an never put out any Around sort of supplementation being anything other than a path towards optimization i think food is i and you should always focus on food but in terms of what is great nutrition. My general framework is pretty simple. I think you want to eat to maintain your blood sugar levels and a healthy range. I think you want to eat a diet that for you does not lead to any sort of dynamic where you're very inflammatory environment. And i think you want to eat a sort of respite of metros in total calories that match your lifestyle and where that in line you wanna make sure. You're focused on food quality. Health quality pieces Seems to be of looked so often. And his principal or nutrient density and then the other variables around william micronutrients are coming from and the quality of and sort of how much cobb some extra protein. How much fat. That's a lot of those are gonna come down to individual preference potentially and then also just how do you live your life that attrition demands of someone who's on a bike aggressively training for two to france.

Will a coronavirus vaccine *actually* stop you getting COVID?

"Today is stuck to kirsty short from the university of queensland. Welcome kissy thank you very much. We've got heaps of questions to put kosti but they also have clustered around a similar theme which is about the vaccine and what it can and can't or has been proven to do what it hasn't been proven today so one of the things that we've talked about quite a lot on current cost is the distinction between whether the vaccine can stop disease in someone who's infected with covid whether it can stop infections at all. Why would we even be making this distinction. Yeah look this is such an important distinction to make. And i think at sometimes a nuance that gets lost in all the discussions of the various craven nineteen vaccines. The reason it's important to make this decision is because a vaccine that protects against just disease is great. And that's going to really really important job. In reducing the number of people that are hospitalized and really sick with covid nineteen but there is a risk that if the vaccine only protects against disease and doesn't protect against transmission. If you do sort of staggered introduction of the vaccine into the population you could have have individuals who vaccination that potentially become sort of silent spreaders of covid nineteen in so far as they don't develop even maybe symptomatic disease but if they can still be infected and transmit they could pose a risk to unvaccinated individuals. So it's really something that we need to dr and we need to watch and it's really something that we need to factoring into her in terms of how the vaccine is rolled out in the community disposable people who don't understand a to understand either is how you can get protection against disease and not against the virus and i think it's it's a really good question and it comes down to a little bit of the anatomy of at the viruses infecting. So if you imagine that a vaccine protects really well you'll lower respiratory tracts. He talking about your lungs and that's really important because you can imagine that as soon as you start getting inflammation virus replication in your lungs. You're gonna get very sick now. Think about your upper respiratory tract in contrast and. That's sort of we're talking about yours now if you get far replication in now you might not get that seat because it's you right and that's not the primary side of gas exchange but it might be really easy for the virus to transmit so once area is if you have a vaccine that protects the lower respiratory tract very well but not the opera spiritual tracked you could have scenario where you have a vaccine that protects against severe disease but it doesn't protect against disease transmission

What the immune response to the coronavirus says about the prospects for a vaccine

What the immune response to the coronavirus says about the prospects for a vaccine

"With a number vaccine candidates against the corona virus sharing promising results in clinical trials and a growing number of studies elving into our mean response to infection. The spotlight has turned once again. On the body's defense mechanisms. I think two questions that really relate to the ability of the vaccine to protect us and our ability to fight off a second infection and so that is the quality of the immune response and the duration of the immune response this week. I'm joined by professor. Eleanor riley from the university of edinburgh to dove into these questions and more. I'm nichole davis. Welcome to science. Weekly ellena you came onto the podcast in july and talk to us about immunity and covid nineteen specifically the relationship between antibodies and immunity. So let's start with a recap on the major players in the immune system that are of interest when it comes to an immune response and potentially immunity so antibodies are protein molecules that are produced by immune cells kobe cells and these cells live in our spleen and narrow and they secrete antibodies off. They've been exposed to a foreign organism such as virus. There are two types of cells that produce. Antibodies on short-lived cells that produce. Antibodies for a few weeks national to the first line response and then some of those cells transition into lonely cells that goto a bone marrow and can produce antibodies for months years. Possibly even to case and then on top of antibodies. have that can kill virus. Infected host cells t cells the two types of t cells one of which we think of such of the conductor of the orchestra of the immune system and these kotei health cells and they very much help the b. cells to make antibodies produce. Growth factors may direct the direction in which the be cells developed and they will still give them signals to turn into cells and then there are the cdte cells and they actively kill virus infected cells and then Antibodies can also bind to these specific cells and help them to kill cells so they recognize little bits of virus on the infected cell bind to the infected so and kill it and then there are cells which are less specific cells that we call macrophages are neutral fills and they just recognized that. Something's not quite right with the cell. They don't necessarily recognize the infected with the virus and they kill it actually or bits of the immune system work together a little bit like you need a whole orchestra to make a good tune when you need all of these cells working together to make a good news arms. And i know you said in july that at that point it was too early to tell how quickly people were losing their antibodies. And we've got to remember here that it's a relatively new virus. What's the latest research saying that seems to have been some movement on that now. What we're seeing is if you all the data together. There's an early peek in the antibodies wants. Lots and lots of antibodies are produced to mop up all virus. That's in your body and then as that virus goes away the antibodies start to decline a little bit. Because you don't need them any antibodies anymore and they settle into a of steady class. O of antibody production. And that's very typical. This kind of two phase response the only peak lots of antibodies followed by sort of standing level of antibodies. That nick for a long time. That's very typical of an antibody response and it sort of relates to the short lived long lived cells. You have lots of short-lived cells making lots of antibody that off and then the long lived cells who that fewer in numba keep on producing. Antibodies for much longer so yes. Let's talk about these long-lived b. cells in the no said the t. cells. What is research telling us about what happens to them and how. How long do they hang around for. So we don't have much data on those are actually quite difficult to look at in humans. They tend to live in the bone marrow for example not very accessible and so we tend to rely on mathematical modeling of the change in the dynamics of the antibody concentration to predict what's going to happen even though we haven't actually been able to see it because it hasn't gone on long enough so the moment the infants is that we have suggests that things are probably okay these cells behaving as we expect them to the was one pay published early on suggesting may be a little bit of a fault with the production of these long midsouth. But i'm not sure that that's been replicated in other studies. I think i saw a preprinted study. That hasn't been peer reviewed yet. Which jested that these visas and t so's lost for at least six months is that. What are the problems here in terms of measuring this so we only have six months data at the moment and the virus really hasn't been around that long so what we can say the moment. Is that the cells assisting for as long as we are able to measure them at the moment obviously in six months or another twelve months time. We'll be able to go back to those people and say have they still got those cells. Yes or no. But in the meantime just looking at the change in the dynamics of the response and mapping it onto what we know the other viruses. My prediction is that these that there will be some long lift immunity to this virus. He said there might be some long term protection. How long term are we talking here. I mean i've seen a lot of people saying well current viruses such as that of course common code some codes of course by coronavirus is of course the protection only lasts for say a year or so. Do we think that our protection against the corona virus that causes covid nineteen mike baxter timeframe or or could it be longer. I think it's very difficult to say at the moment. Say all of the data. We have suggests that these antibody responses are going to be at least as long lived as response of corona viruses. And possibly i might think even probably going to last longer your immune response tends to be proportional to the level of threat that you face so the common cold corona viruses really only colonize our upper respiratory tract so on nose throat and so the virus doesn't go very deep into apology and we make rather grief that effective noon response nose and throat that controls it this coq nineteen causing virus goes much deeper into our bodies it goes down into our lungs into bronchial and therefore the immune response tends to be stronger and they struggle we call systemic immune responses do tend to last longer because they are recognizing that there is a more serious threat that has to be dealt with. Do we know if factors like ethnicity gender age factor in the scale of the immune response. She said stronger. Immune response to your first. Infection is is more likely to me. You have great protection against the second infection. Those factors correlated at all. There's very little day to so far on ethnic differences in the immune response the data. That's coming after the vaccine trials suggests that there aren't any major differences in at between ethnic groups in terms of whether the vaccine protects them will not but we haven't yet seen lab data on their antibody responses with at t cell responses. There is a lot of genetic variation in the immune response. People be aware that some people unfortunately have very severe genetically determined immunodeficiencies. That's just the tip of the iceberg of genetic variation in the immune response and some of those differences do have geographical and ethnic components to that certain genes that either make good or bad immune response on more common or less common in groups countries. But we don't yet know if any of that is going to influence really the totality of their immune responses. We just don't have any evidence much by age. It feels like ages is. It's very important given that the older you are the more risque from caveat nineteen so there are two components to that one is whether you are able to make an immune response again's a virus. You've never seen before and there is. I think really quite good evidence that you ability to make a completely new immune response does decline as you get older. The other component is that a lot of the disease we say in coke nineteen excessive inflammation. And there's also evidence that we get older with less good controlling inflammation so it's a little bit of a double whammy as we get older way are less able to make an immune response to a new virus such as the covid nineteen virus and if we then get the viral infection where less good at controlling the inflammation that it causes a so we know there are several different vaccines. Which looking very promising. You have the rene vaccines at you have vaccines which used a chimp. Virus to bring genetic material from the corona virus into cells. The question is is the immune response that generated the same as it would have been to a natural infection and do the t. cells and so on hang around in the same way. The vaccine is just a tiny component of viruses this spike protein which is on the surface of the virus and so if you vaccinated with spike protein. You make antibodies in tesol responses just to that protein. If you get the virus itself then you get many many more pro teams that you're exposed to a new may make antibodies to some of those. So you responded more limited but you might also say that your response is more focused because it's actually antibodies to spike coaching a really important for neutralizing the virus so the vaccine in juices a narrow immune response but one would hope it would also be focused on therefore stronger on the base the matter and would it be expected that this will provoke a stronger. Immune response natural infection. I've heard some people say that actually vaccine can producer a strong response it coun- if they initial infection is quite mild say with virus like sauce covy to which induces very mild infections in some people i would expect the vaccine to tobacco to jason mewes which is much stronger than you would get after nascent dramatic or mild infection. People get serious dose of coca to make a very strong immune response. And i doubt if the vaccine it doesn't need to be any strong national adopt if it is when it comes to and viruses the coups common code. It's been some concern that these viruses somehow elude the memory b cells. and so. that's why even though we have thousand cells to to the common cold viruses. We will often get reinfected with them. I wonder if they're those same concerns about the coronavirus behind covid nineteen so there is a little basic data. There's one paper that suggests that the sauce kofi to virus that causes covid nineteen disables particular pathway in the b. cell response leading to a poor long term memory response but these experiments done in the lab in a in a in a petrie dish. And i think it's too early to know if that's really what happens in humans so i think we do need to be a little bit cautious and we need to be aware that it might happen. Good news is that the proteins that are believed to cause that problem are not present in the vaccine so even if it's a problem in natural infection it shouldn't be a problem with a vaccine

Fueled By Climate Change, Hurricanes Are Causing Industrial Accidents. Who's Liable?

"So, you just got back from the Gulf coast where you were covering Hurricane Laura. How was your trip? The, hurricane damage was really bad. You know a lot of people down there have lost their homes, which is hard to see. Yeah and just to remind everybody Laura was the one that hit the Texas Louisiana border in August. This storm is clearly roaring. You're reaching that critical moment here. This now joins an elite group. It's in the top ten, a small elite group of the most dangerous hurricanes to ever make landfall into the US residents along the Gulf coast are bracing for potential devastation, Hurricane Lara and that area is so flat. It is so full of petrochemical facilities to their these refineries, a lot of new natural gas infrastructure, their chemical plants that manufacture all sorts of things like plastics and solvents actually even the raw materials for p. p. e., a lot of them are manufactured. Rubber gloves and surgical masks. So so what happened when the hurricane of hit all of that a lot of them shut down and when petrochemical facilities shutdown they usually release a lot of pollution right stuff that can't safely sit in pipes. So it has to be released or burn and preliminary estimates just in Texas showed that more than four million extra pounds of pollution were released. That was actually before the storm even made landfall. But the reason I wanted to talk to you is because one chemical plant caught fire because of the storm that is a look at I ten, which has now been shut down as these plumes of smoke emerged about an hour ago. The governor now is confirming this as a chemical fire has made an emergency crews responded to the inferno at via lab in Lake Charles which manufacturers pull supplies. Okay. So we've we've talked about this on the show before it didn't chemical plant in Texas catch fire after another hurricane Hurricane Harvey. Ago Yes and we talked about it on this very podcast because that fire in Texas started this totally new kind of legal battle, a climate change criminal lawsuit, and I have to say so far there is no indication that this most recent fire will lead to similar litigation but with this really active hurricane season that we're having in the super hot water in the Gulf of Mexico hoping spawn these strong. Storms head right for America's petrochemical centers I thought it might be a good moment to revisit that story and the questions that raises. So this episode, we're going to hear that story. It's a story that asks this question can companies and the people who work for them be held responsible, even sent to prison for failing to adequately prepare for climate change, you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. Okay Becky, take us back to the beginning of this story. So it's a story that happened in twenty seventeen at a chemical plant near Houston Texas, and it's when this major hurricane struck. We are coming on the air for breaking news. This is Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Harvey barreling into the Texas coastline as a category four storm with one hundred and thirty mile an hour winds. It's yeah, I remember. Hervey was kind of unique because it made landfall and then it just kind of stopped and sat on top of Texas, just dumping and Dumping Rain. Some places got as much as sixty inches of rain. There was a lot of flooding obviously, our primary layer of protection was our power supply. When the storm hit we lost our primary power. You're hearing a guy who is a division president at one of those petrochemical companies that was overwhelmed by the flooding. His name is Richard. Rendered the company he helped run it's called Arkham. We brought in emergency generators to provide backup power. So what he's describing his in the aftermath of the storm, those generators were compromised. There's this intense effort to keep the power on at the Arkansas plant outside Houston. The plant is near a major highway. It's in a relatively residential area. So why were they fighting so hard to keep the power on basically because the plant was full of chemicals that have to be refrigerated Otherwise they catch fire. We do have that breaking news that we've been bringing you throughout the five o'clock hour this brand new explosion and a fire burning. As we speak the Arkham plant in Crosby, you can see that plume of black smoke billowing into the air. In fact, you can see it for miles and miles away. So they make organic peroxides which are. Volatile Chemicals, they're used to manufacture plastics and other stuff and organic rock sides are pretty hazardous because they can catch fire if they get warm right and they don't even need a spark, right. So organic peroxides contain both fuel and oxygen and when they become unstable, they heat up on their own and catch fire. Yeah. I can really hear that PhD coming through. So the Arima plant, it had a lot of refrigerated warehouses and buildings to keep these chemicals cold, and they also have a bunch of refrigerated trailers outside those warehouses. Okay. So talk me through it. What happened that resulted in the accident so harvey was stalled over the Houston area, just dumping rain for days and the refrigerated warehouses, the buildings they were flooding as the warehouses flooded. The employees were using forklifts to move containers of these chemicals from one refrigerated warehouse to another to try to keep them dry and cool, and the water just kept getting higher and higher and the electrical generators for the buildings started. Flood that's not good and then the forklift flooded. Okay. So would you do when you're forklift floods? So according to the US chemical, Safety Board investigation employees at the plant started carrying individual jugs of these highly flammable liquids in the dark my chest high water while it was still raining to get it to the refrigerated trailers we talked about because only the trailer still had power. Yeah. I read this report and it was terrifying like I can't imagine being one of those people still there as they're in like deep water trying to move these chemicals at one point, one of the trailer started to turn over. On their side. It was really like super scary. Yeah and you might be able to guess what happens next the trailers flooded they weren't refrigerated anymore the chemicals got warmer and warmer until they caught fire. So did people get hurt when the fire started in the plant? Well, the plant had been evacuated. So the employees were okay that we know of but there were some first responders who say they were injured while they were patrolling the area that had been evacuated specifically that there is and respiratory tracts were urinated by air contamination and there were some people who live nearby who also say they were injured. By the smoke and the ash from the fires. So we knew the chemicals themselves can be toxic was the smoke from them toxic as well. That's a good question. So when the chemicals burned, they actually just turned into carbon dioxide and water, but I talked to multiple organic chemists and they explained that the problem is actually the containers that were being burned a chemist at Bryn Mawr. College Name Michelle Francis explained it this way everything from the labels on things to whatever plastic or metal that the containers are made out of all that stuff is GonNa absorb other chemicals that didn't burn entirely. So the ashes nasty. The ashes nasty so that ash is made up of container junk and chemicals that didn't totally burn. That's the stuff that potentially could have harmed the first responders and the people close by and it's not something you ideally want in the air or water right so much. So that in two thousand, eighteen, the district attorney's Office for Harris County Texas announced criminal charges against the plant manager who was actually one of the people carrying those chemicals through the water. And Armas North American CEO, and later they also filed charges against a third person and executive at the company which was really surprising to a lot of people because in general, the criminal courts aren't used to punish companies in their employees for polluting the air and water especially when it happens during big storms and I went down to Houston interviewed the district attorney about it. Her name is Kim Og-. The. Charges are environmental. They are reckless emission of an air contaminant and endangerment of persons. Reckless emissions of an air contaminant feels like a bunch of words that be polluting lawyers like. Big Words. So why did she say she was filing these charges you mentioned that there were a lot of petrochemical plants around Houston that flooded and leak stuff during Hurricane Harvey is there something about these fires that was worse? Yeah I asked her that and one argument she made is that the fires happened because people at Arkham ignored the risk of flooding like they should have known that their plant could flood like that and prepared better. For example, the plant is in a flood plain and even though Harvey dumped more rain than any US storm on record the argument the county is making. Is that there were signs that flood risk was increasing before harvey because of Climate Change we've had new normal in Houston. We've had three five hundred year floods in just a short period of time, and it's true that flooding is getting more frequent and severe in. Houston as it is in many parts of the country and something climate models have been predicting for a long time that extreme rain will get more likely as earth hotter including rain from hurricanes. So in this case, the county is basically arguing that the company had a responsibility to recognize that flood risk was increasing and do. More to keep their chemicals from catching fire. So obviously, the company doesn't agree or they wouldn't be in the middle of a trial right now what is the company say? So after the indictments for announced, I interviewed two of the layers representing Komo and its employees. One of them is pretty well known in Houston been working for a really long time. His name is Rusty Harden Arkham did everything they were supposed to do here hardened says the company followed all the regulations it's required to follow. He seemed pretty galled that employees were facing criminal charges trying to find scapegoats and calling individuals felons. Are you kidding me this is outrageous. It's morally legally ethically wrong and the point he made is that if the current regulations for chemical companies in flood prone areas aren't enough. Then the regulations should be changed by legislatures not by courts and especially he argues by criminal courts sometimes bad things happen that there's no crime. There's no responsibility is not anyone's fault we need to look forward to. The future and make sure that we are prepared for these kinds of things if this is going to be the new norm in many think it is. Okay. So becky, like what is at stake in this trial if the county wins and the company loses will that change how we think about climate change in the law it could actually yeah, I talked to this Guy David Omen he's. A law professor at the University of Michigan, and one thing he said that I think is really interesting is that environmental laws and regulations are generally based on this underlying assumption that the future will look like the past today. Already, we expect companies to be prepared to handle what I might call ordinary rainfall. What climate change is going to do among other things is change our definition of what is ordinary rainfall. Another way to understand it in a legal context is that you can be held accountable and punished. If you don't prepare for something, you should have seen coming. It's the idea of foreseeability so. Like if you know that climate change is happening, does that mean it's foreseeable and you should prepare for it yet that's the big question exactly and how foreseeable extreme weather is hinges in part on how businesses inform themselves about the climate science that's available to them, right? Yeah. Like I talked to an environmental lawyer at the Conservation Law Foundation Alina Mehalle that foreseeability isn't just a question of did you personally know that this could happen but it's really what kind of maps were available to you. What kind of experts did you hire to inform yourself about this decision? What kind of modeling

"But it did have a higher mortality rate. So in the original, SARS the overall mortality rate I think globally was around ten percents. In Canada was seventeen percent. I mean, fortunately, this virus does not have a mortality rate of. Percents, but or that would be devastating, but this virus transmits. Much, much easier and we don't. We don't understand all the differences but there are some things we do know about eight to You know we do know about another cellular pro as got involved also in how the virus gets in we're starting to understand what cell pipe it replicates in and what some of the host responses are. we don't see as robust of an interferon response, for example, as we see with some other viruses. So we are starting to understand those subtle differences, which is now starting to allow with understand Oh, about why we see that clinically or about how why it might be different from the original third. Yeah. I mean five percent difference in. We see so much difference funeral typically about how it presents in patients incredible in understanding like you said, is still an ongoing process so. Do. We know about what the like any particular changes that we've already identified between the. Original source fire some novel SARS virus. Dot contribute to some of these different effect. I think one of the biggest ones one of the biggest. Differences is. where? Not Not just a to and and we know as to is one of the receptors when it's not as simple as that we know there have to be other receptors as well but the original far really was a lower respiratory tract infection. Um whereas when you have predominantly an upper and nasal court of infection that partially, what really lends itself to that transmission because any cough any sneeze runny nose saliva I mean it when you have a really upper respiratory tract and they will type of infection transmission is is much more robust than if it's a really deep lower. Respiratory Tract Infections and another subtle difference with this virus is and again, it could be due to those. You know it's five percent changes. Five percents is still you know quite a bit at the protein level you know the ability to have the. Instructions that are the. Asymmetric infections. There were very few asymptomatic infections that we understood with the original SARS if you really develop that lower respiratory tract infections. You know and almost everyone that has symptoms was positive. You know now we know there's a lot of asymmetric carriers.

"Across the world covid nineteen is making a comeback. Boris Johnson's dubbed a second wave and the WHO have suggested that people dropping their God together with the relaxation of public health measures in many countries is translating into a surge in cases. France is seeing nearly four thousand daily cases and across Europe as a whole, the total is closed at twenty, six thousand people testing positive each day. Now, as a result of all of that people are trying to learn as much. As possible about the manner in which Corona, Vars and other respiratory infections spread so far lot of emphasis has been placed onerous spirit tree droplets, blobs of moisture that come out of the Airways when we breathe and talk and they can contain virus particles and people are wearing face coverings and they their hands to try to ward off that risk. But I school, of Medicine at Mount Sinai New York Nicole Bouvier has been testing how flu spreads among Guinea Pigs not the. Humans the Rodent fraud and she's found that respiratory droplets are indeed important but the viruses can also cling to other things which can be even more numerous as well. When humans either talk or cough or sneeze there's all kinds of microscopic particles that come out of your respiratory tract droplets of pure water proteins, bits, and pieces of dead cells most of which is is invisible. So we don't really think about it but but it's there. So presumably, Guinea pigs were doing. The same thing, and we wanted to know what exactly is coming out of them when they are infected with flu and putting flew out into the air how did you do the experiments? We put the Guinea pigs in a special cage that had a fine air filter that prevents know stuff from the environment coming in, and then we have the other side of the cage hooked up to an aerodynamic particle size or an APS and that's that's basically just a machine can. Not only count microscopic particles that can tell you how big they are, and what we're finding is that there were. Thousands of particles per second every time to get a big moved there was this big poof of particles that were being detected six to us that actually the particles coming out of the cage where associated with movement and that's when we started thinking. Well, maybe this isn't just what's coming out of the respiratory tracts, but it's just dust. So these are guinea pigs for Dandruff is that BICYC-? Well. Yeah. You know eight they are dandruff animals but so are we I mean humans slough billions of skin cells off every day but flu viruses don't grow in the skin lake grow in the nose and throat. So why is this this Dander? Another particulate matter does coming off the Guinea pigs relevant. So. What we did is we took a game egg and we infected with influenza virus, and then we put the guinea pigs in a cage and we sampled virus from the cage and from the animal's body we just took a cotton swab and dipped it in saline and swab the animals, ears in their paws and there for and the sides, the cage, and we were able to actually grow. A lot of viable flu virus from these swaps and that indicated to us that the virus was actually being spread all over itself and its environment and it kind of makes sense when you think about what you're doing all day long, which is brimming themselves and and sniffling around it makes sense that virus from their noses could be getting all over the place. Does that mean then that because? There's virus on things other than droplets coming out of the nose and throat that could be infectious to exactly. We also did some measurements where we were trying to measure exactly what was coming out just the Guinea pigs respiratory tract and what we found was that the amount of particles coming out of their respiratory tract was just orders of magnitude smaller than what was coming out of the cage when. It was sort of a wake in moving around, and so it seemed reasonable to think that maybe some of these particles from the environment that if they were contaminated with flu virus might actually be transporting the virus through the air to the they susceptible Guinea pig next door and could you infect other animals if you take those particles can you demonstrate that there is viable virus they're capable of infecting? An uninfected individual. Yes. So what we did is we took some virus and just painted it onto their for. And then we put this animal into the into the cage next to a susceptible animal and we were able to see transmission to the susceptible animal, and that suggests that particles that were conveying the virus. We're actually not coming from the respiratory tract because there was actually no virus replicating in the donor animals respiratory tract at that point

Coronavirus May Be a Blood Vessel Disease, Which Explains Everything

"Story the corona virus pandemic is still with us and we'll cover it nineteen was initially thought to be a respiratory disease many of the symptoms have another thing in common poor blood circulation and blood vessel damage forty percent of deaths from corona virus related to cardiovascular complications for more on how this disease is starting to look like a vascular infection instead of a purely respiratory one we'll speak to Dana Smith senior writer at elemental I mean it's a really bizarre infection and I want to be clear you know it's definitely still in fact in the long people do still have pneumonia like we initially thought they did but like you said there's a lot of really bizarre other symptoms that have emerged things like strokes and blood clots a lot of cardiovascular complications that you don't typically see with a normal respiratory disease fell if I merge and I laugh mother Jill that it could be that the virus is not only affecting fell in the longer the respiratory tract but also infecting blood vessel cells and that's really unique not many buyers to do that and we don't think there's any other respiratory viruses apparently know that did it all felt felt the original hardwired influenza viruses don't infected blood vessel cells so it's really unique for Kobe to the novel coronavirus in particular and it could explain a lot of these really strange and really deadly complications that we're seeing so let's talk a little bit about how it progresses through the body sars Kobe to go through the body and connects to these AC E. two receptors that are usually in the nose and throat and from there what happens it can start destroying some lung tissue and it can break open some blood vessels and then it started catching to all these other cells that have to do with the blood vessels are called endothelial cells and and then it creates this immune response and then everything starts going haywire but it seems that all these other side effects seem to be kind of coming from the blood vessel problems we know that it could be to get them out of Iraq have to latch on to these these two receptors and there a few weeks after the all through your nose in your respiratory tract in your long thank you all for your body there the company and have been there some even in the brain and they're also on the bloodbath well we think that just like we've always thought about the virus gets into the body through the nose and throat which is why you still need to wash your hands don't touch your face the boy being around people who are coughing all the standard recommendations are critical it's still the same with this new development but we still get infected through the respiratory tract and then the virus travels down into the long wait is still causing damage and and ammonia but then the unique part is the final step where it does actually get into the blood vessel felt still activating on the H. two receptors on the bloodbath without editor there it can travel everywhere in the body and for that but you start being these really bizarre things that would like to call the toes that people are talking about that could be a problem with circulation all the way to you're good at your fingers and toes it's why you start being of the blood clot it's why risk being potentially damaging the intestines and the liver and the kidneys really furious diseases because a lot of information and can cause organ has shut down to the part of the body's overactive immune response which is what we thought was happening with Kobe nineteen to begin with and that still could be the case but the evidence is mounting that there's this kind of other route that the virus is using two is fast and caused damages other organs that

Doctor Chris Smith Speaking About Coronavirus

"The longer the covid nineteen lockdown goes on the more we learn about covid nineteen not least because being locked down like this. We don't have a great deal to do but ever expanding testing is teaching us about the spread of the virus will hopefully help us figure out how soon something like normality becomes a possibility he in the UK Health Secretary. Hancock has suggested that seventeen percent of Londoners may now have covid nineteen antibodies. I'm joined with more on this prime article. Twenty four health and science correspondent Dr. Chris Smith also a viral adjust at Cambridge University. Chris first of all that figure seventeen percent which suggests as I understand that seventeen percent of Londoners have been infected by cove nineteen to one extent or another. Does that sound like a plausible number? Yeah I think I think it does some countries and indeed some commentators in many countries hyping the number would be a bit higher. But Tha that does seem to twin with what we knew about the circulation of the agent. We New London was hot spots. We knew it took off their more than in other parts of the UK and this is also backed up by the that in the parts of the UK. This the Ciro positively right in other words. The number of people with antibodies against the new kind of ours is between five and seven percent so that does align with that so quite high circulation in London lower levels of circulation across the rest of the country but across the whole it means that the vast majority of people are not immune therefore only a small fraction of the countryside. Fall has actually called the new cry of ours. Is there anything we can infer from that figure in London? Not Merely about the level of infection but the the level of exposure what. I'm wondering is if you take a given Londoner for the sake of argument. Let's say it's Me Prior to lockdown traveling at least twice a day on Tube trains most of which were pretty crowded frequently being out and about in London which is a busy city speaking to. I don't know dozens of people a day as a journalist does is there any meaningful chance? I wouldn't have been exposed at some point. I it's very likely that you probably have encountered this. But he's whether or not you encountered any infectious dose of it because that's the key thing nodal viruses virus particles might equally and when a person is infected. They are producing from their body and all of their secretions of from the respiratory tract. So that's coughing sneezing just breathing droplets of moisture which virus particles in the they hope for in the for a period of time and it may well be that some of those virus particles that just stopped so although that virus particles and although they might have some genetic information in them they just might not go off like a dodgy firework you like them nothing happens so a person who breathes in some of those particles isn't guaranteed that will catch it so it's not a given if you're sharing it with someone who's infected. You're definitely going to get it. Because it depends how much they're actually issuing from their body into the that you then encounter but yes people in London had an above average Johnson counseling other people who were infected and therefore infectious and because of the high density working environment in London. The high density of traveling in London as a result of that the opportunity afforded to the virus to spread was higher which is why London took off soon took off foster and had high levels of virus. I've rule and I think part of this is probably a reflection on the London's also right next door to one of the world's busiest airports Heathrow which would have an she connected with the London. Transport system would perhaps have been a a conduit into the country with many cases arriving via that route every day. And then probably moving into the capital and helping to spread it if seventeen percent is not it yet is. I don't know whether this is a useful way to be thinking or not but is there. A number percentage at which a widespread lifting of lockdown measures starts to seem like a sensible way forward. Well if we're using how immune people all the immunity right in the population. Then we'd need to be up in the high tens of percent like sixty seventy percent of the population immune in order for this to have any kind of serious impact on the ability of the virus to spread because this whole notion of herd immunity. The word is unfortunately been misrepresented misunderstood by many people as meaning some kind of a strategy to allow people to catch the virus naturally into become immune as a country herd immunity just means that the vast majority of people are immune which means that there are so few susceptible individuals left in the mixture that the virus Kennel circulate. And so you protect the UNAMUNE few by the immunity of the many. That's what herd. Immunity means but in order for that to work. You need very high numbers of the population to be immune so when we vaccinate people against diseases like measles with the Mo. That's why we try to get to ninety five percent of the population because we know even when we get to ninety five percent the population. A handful of people just won't respond to the vaccine so that gives us a bit of safety margin and it means that a good. It to eighty five percents people are gonNA be reliably immune and that means the fifteen to twenty percent who not and this includes newborn babies every year just unlikely to encounter so unlikely to encounter someone who's actually got it that there's no transmission chain in the population that is potentially achievable for this new corona vars volunteer routes. Either we all catch it and we become immune and then new members of the population who bowl not yet an organic. Because there's no disease can eating or more tracks if we make a vaccine against this when we get the vaccine into everybody either way we arrive at a stay of heard immunity where this too few people who are susceptible in the population for the Vars to be able to maintain a transmission chain Christmas.

Symptoms of Coronavirus: Early Signs, Serious Symptoms

"What does it mean to be sick with current Oh virus we typically think I probably of shortness of breath symptom that will determine whether you should go to the doctor. You have a fever could lose your sense of smell. Maybe some stomach problems. Who What does this virus actually? Due to the body Meredith Wiedeman team of reporters from science looked at what we know of its effect system by system. It's not a complete picture yet but researchers are starting to pull it together. Okay Meredith how are you? I'm fine how are you Sarah? I'm good. This is a very comprehensive story from nose to Toews. I think they saw in one description of the work. Yes and so what happens? When a person comes in contact with the novel coronavirus. He essentially they inhale it and respiratory droplets. They might also pick it up on fingers that they then placed to their face from an inanimate surface the virus finds a welcoming home in the upper respiratory tract. A back of the throat the nose. Because there there are cells that are rich in what are known as ace two receptors and these are receptors that live on the surface of some cells and that the virus needs in order to get into those cells. We don't know the numbers but some people are just gonNA clear the infection and move on with their lives. Right they are. They're going to either be a symptomatic not even being aware they are infected and they can be very infectious in this stage or they might feel crummy they might have Malays. They might have aches fever. That really within a week or so start to recover ordered. They might go into a more serious phase of the disease. This is when the virus makes its way into the lower respiratory tract. That's right if your immune system can't beat back the virus while except in your nose and throat then the risk goes up of marching down your windpipe and into what we call the respiratory tree. The whole system of Airways that leads to the far reaches of the lung. And that's where the virus again finds a welcoming home because the tiny air sacs called Alveoli where oxygen exchange occurs with the blood also adds an abundance of these ace to receptors on their cell surfaces. And this is a problem because if the immune system goes on the attack these tiny spaces in the lungs you can get really serious problems. Sure it becomes what we know as pneumonia and ammonia simply as lung inflammation. This particular virus can cause a really rip roaring lung inflammation but these patients may have in quotes. Mild the MONJA. Although I don't think anyone has described how they feel as mildly affected or they may turn a severe sharp corner where they begin a rapid downhill. Slide into what we know is acute respiratory distress syndrome where. There's just a raging pneumonia and on their chest xrays or C. T. Scans you're GonNa see white where you should have seen black. Lack representing air in an white. Is this whole inflammatory? Response trying to beat back the virus but doing damage itself. Alveoli walls breakdown either can be clots in the little tiny blood vessels that supply the OBVIO- light nurse. Just a real STU real mess and when people deteriorate very seriously enough deny one thing that researchers are trying to understand is how serious is this immune response and would intervening at that point. Be Helpful for patients. If you have just a regular immune response and you start giving immune suppressing drugs your disarming your your Mahameed in a minority of gravely. Ill patients the immune system goes into this really damaging hyper immune state. Call that a cytokine storm when levels of certain chemical signals and the blood. Go absolutely off the charts and in the end what happens is the immune cells of the body began attacking healthy tissues and you can get widespread kwoh-ting you get the blood. Vessels leaking blood pressure plummeting. It's a catastrophe for the whole body. So in efforts to combat that out of Control Immune response they are deploying drugs that go after specific ones of these chemical signaling molecules known as cytokines and just to be clear here. Most of what we're going to be talking about is for severely affected patients people who are in the ICU people who are coming into the ER. So let's turn to the heart and blood vessels meredith. This is something surprisingly being seen in maybe twenty percent of patients. Yes it's clear that the heart and blood vessels are a target for Kovic and just how unwise still being sorted out. Let one paper in. Jama cardiology found heart damage in nearly twenty percent of more than four hundred patients who were hospitalized for the disease in. Wuhan another found forty four percent of patients in an ICU. There had abnormal heart rhythms. And then there's also an increased tendency to blood clotting that in a Dutch. Icu nearly forty percent of patients had blood. That was clotting abnormally. These are extremely problematic issues and people. That are already very sick from pneumonia. What has been seen happening to people's hearts there seems to be heart inflammation and it's possible because the heart lining and the blood vessel lining just like the cells in the lungs and the nose is rich in these ace two receptors again. They're the viruses port of entry into into cells. So the cells could be. It's possible that they're being in the heart. And the vessels directly inflamed. It's possible there at the lack of oxygen. Getting through because of the problems in the lung is doing additional damage to her vessels could be that a societal kind storm releasing all these inflammatory molecules again and sells remember they attack normal healthy tissue and that can include the linings of blood vessels so there are these multiplex of potential causes that may indeed vary between patients as to what's causing let. But it's clear that there's cardiac and vessel damage in a significant number of severely. Ill patients let's take a turn now to the brain. This is something that we've seen some scary reports on actually of inflammation in the brain and we've also seen law sense of smell in corona virus. Patients is that something that's related to the brain it might be that's not been established but there is a direct connection from so-called olfactory neurons. The ones that light you smell running from the nose up to. It's called the olfactory bulb which connects to the brain as one of our sources. Put It as a nice sounding feary who I have to go and prove that it actually extends to the brain but there are more general brain effects. That don't trace back to loss of sense of smell for one thing. The bloods increased tendency to clot can put patients at risk of having strokes. There's also a problem in that. A lot of these folks developed kidney failure that in itself can cause delirium and problems for the brain in addition there can also be a quote unquote sympathetic storm. It's sort of an overreaction of the nervous system that somewhat analogous to the site of kinds storm and that's common after traumatic brain injury some people with Cova nineteen can lose consciousness. So there's just a whole panoply of potential brain symptoms another symptom that I'd heard of before reading this story and I haven't heard most of this. Was that people can have symptoms in their gut. They can have diarrhea. They can have upset stomach. Does this mean that you know the virus pieces of the virus are surviving digestion? Yes apparently it does. And one of the suggestions is that patients are swallowing their own respiratory secretions and that the virus is carried live and somehow survives the acid environment in the stomach to land in the small intestine which is again replete. With these ace two receptors. An so virus can establish. Wow a robust infection. There that's it's thought what's leading to diarrhea nausea and other problems in perhaps on average about twenty percent of patients across studies. I WANNA take a step back here and just talk about how all these different systems being affected kind of expand the pool of people who have pre existing conditions that would make corona virus infection. Really dangerous for them. Can you talk a little bit about that? Sure so since we were just talking about kidney disease in the kidneys. That's one of the organ systems. Where if you have a pre existing kidney disease that gives you basically a handicap when you start this race with this new virus than we think of something like diabetes harms the kidneys. So if you start with a lower baseline of kidney function these chronic kidney patients with pre existing kidney disease are at seriously greater risk of developing acute kidney injury during the infection in the same way diseases that affect the blood vessels will also put patients at higher risk. High blood pressure diabetes again congestive heart failure all these kinds of pre-existing disease just make patients that much more vulnerable. Should they become infected? So how is research like this? It's so preliminary. Were really just beginning to understand the progression of this infection. How will this help with interventions or treatments? I think it will certainly offer clues and sign posts. There will be new discoveries that hopefully will lead to highly effective drugs but we have already a good deal of information that points the way to either existing drugs or targets for drugs now being developed knowing for instance the outline of a site a kind storm which is something that can be triggered by other viral infections or bacterial infections. We have a starting place with that. We have these drugs already being deployed and other inflammatory states like rheumatoid arthritis that you can then say well. If they're beating back a certain site assign one of these out of Control Chemical Messengers in arthritis may be they will also be back some piece of the cytokine storm. That's going on in these severely ill patients and so you have such drugs being deployed in clinical trials. What we know about the ace two receptor and it's detailed protein. Structure has been defined by a couple of new important papers hopefully will give us new unique targets to actually prevent binding there. Which would be terrific. Yeah so what? Was it like trying to report on this? Big Mix of peer reviewed preprinted small clinical studies firsthand reports. Those kinds of things was very challenging. Every scientist and physician we interviewed really added the caveat. This is science on the fly. Our knowledge today may be completely eclipsed a month from now or what we're thinking about how this diseases is acting may be proven wrong within three weeks. This is obviously an ongoing endeavor to understand how the disease progresses what conditions set you up for getting extra sick and then you know the mechanisms that are happening at the cellular level. Where is the best information going to come from? Do you think. Is this something where people need to set up. These robust studies that you described. Are they doing that now? Yes in fact. They are doing it but hampered by the fact that they're trying to at the same time in many cases take care of desperately ill. Patients cleverly does the analogy goes trying to build the plane. While you're flying at this information is going to be constrained or imperfect because of the situation. It doesn't mean it's not going to be important.

UN scientists looking to nuclear techniques to create lifesaving COVID-19 vaccine

"His job you don't see advertised everyday radiating Nico Vid nineteen viruses. Just one of the extraordinary tossed from the to do list right now of headache vallone from the International Atomic Energy Agency. Who's doing whatever he can to help. Countries from the deadly pathogen in interview by Skype with you and uses Daniel Johnson. He shares his assessment of the new corona virus and explains how nuclear drive techniques could save hospitals precious time when treating sick patients that vantage that we have in. Alabama cheese does that. We are able to transfer the know. How in the expertise directly from Alabama Richie to other participating abortuaries wherever they are in the world we have dispersed out technologies to forty five countries in Africa nine thousand nine countries in Asia something like twenty seven countries in Europe and the Balkans and nine countries in central and Latin America. Can you tell me about how you love's actually eliminate these viruses? Then there's two approaches. The one is that we are currently looking at irradiating. The covert virus the pathogen itself to see if we can inactivate through certain extent where it can be used as vaccine or a model vaccine this however is in very very initial stages and it's still a long way to go but this is one way that we can apply the nuclear technologies the other way that we can apply. The nuclear technologies is indirectly in sterilizing. Let's say the protection gear and the protection equipment and the protection utilities using the hospitals and visionary practices which normally in the traditional ways can take four to eight days to stabilize these equipment. While irradiation it could be in a couple of hours and this technology isn't dangerous. Philip technicians. No it's very. Very level irradiation disaggregation does not make the object radioactive. It is just a source to sterilize. The material very much like in food safety where we irradiate food products which is a much longer shelf life because the radiation only destroy the pathogens and not the quality of the ingredients of the food very much the same in this case. So there's no radioactive source or result there from your research so far. How does this corona virus outbreak competitor previous epidemics like these cells in most episodes they have different epidemiological distributions and different characters? In the case of SARS two thousand three the spread was very limited and we had something like eight hundred dates in total and then the virus sort of imploded and it didn't spread further because the actions were such divided spray was not as aggressive as we are now in the case of the merced grown of virus came from we speak bets into the camel population and in the Komo population. It circulates the camels are the host and sporadically. It is being transmitted to humans which they invaded daily transmitted from human to other humans. In the case of the present covert. Nineteen Corona virus outbreak. It also came from bets. We suspect how it came into the human population we. We are not exactly sure but what we do know is that the epicenter of thirst. Outbreak was a wild market in John in the hallway by province and they ended spread from there from human to human now. The dynamics of this prison outbreak is such that it speaks very easily from human to human via droplets or aircel in close contact between people and it infects the lower respiratory tract of these people. Do you have a feeling for how virulent this corona virus is having studied it in the lab? Well I cannot say that. It is more or less virulent. It's just different modes of transmission. It is much easier to transmit that this particular corona virus than other corona viruses are the type of corona viruses. As you know there's also common cold that's caused by by corona by grown virus but it is not as pathogenic as this one to give you the example of let's say mortality rate a deadliness of the different viruses bazaars corona virus of two thousand three at the mortality rate of ten percent. Which means that one out of ten people infected with it died in the case of the nurse Corona virus one from camels to humans thirty percent or almost thirty percent of the humans die that get infected with his fires at the prison population. Newbie demure logical data that we have for the prison. Nineteen Corona virus is that it has a mortality rate of between two point five and three percent so it means that two and a half people out of hundred people that are infected with this virus die of it so pathogenic wise it is not as severe as the previous two but in terms of its ease of transmission and ease of spread this much much more aggressive last question. How has the pandemic affected your training work? You were supposed to hold a session this week weren't you? It is true we were supposed to have on Monday. The twenty eight I two week. Training course out of four training courses which was grandchil- scheduled on a monthly basis. Starting from Monday the first one on Monday will be postponed but this the second third and fourth training courses are still in place depending of course on the travel restrictions and the situation at the time so we are very flexible in that sense. In the meantime we are sending out the needed. Reagents equipment to member states. We are in contact with them to evaluate the country's proficiencies and we try and support them as much as we can do enable them to utilize these technologies for the benefit of the diagnostic

Why Is The Coronavirus So Good At Spreading?

"As we at the top of all of our corona virus episodes. We are learning a lot about this virus. Really fast the information in this episode is what we have learned as of our recording on Monday march twenty third and what we know will probably change a group okay. So the corona virus that's causing this pandemic is part of a larger group. Or family of Corona viruses. So some causes the common cold. There are famous ones like murderers and SARS but only this one has caused a pandemic. So let's talk about why that might be so if you look at the structure of the virus we see certain clues about why it's behaving in such an extreme way. So all corona viruses. This one is basically a bowl with some spikes sticking out of it. Those spikes or what? The virus uses to launch an infection. They bind to a protein called ace to which sits on the surface of ourselves. And this binding like a key fitting into a lock is the first stage of any infection. Now if we compare the shape of the spike protein on this new corona virus to that of say the original source. Fire some two thousand three. We see it sticks to the ace to protein much more tightly much more strongly and that is likely to influence the course of infections in very broad terms the stronger the stick the lesser virus. You probably need to actually start an infection. And that's really important because if you if it doesn't take as much virus to start an infection it's easier to transmit the virus from person to person. It's what we call an infectious dose. That's right so basically. This virus is stickier than the virus that caused SARS. That's right this virus is better at recognizing an latching onto human cells. Yeah we think in your piece you suggested that some of the virologist that study these families of viruses have started calling the SARS virus SARS classic. Which is it's kind of delightful in a way. It is a moment of light light comic relief in the middle of this horrific catastrophe. I think that because this new virus has been cold saws covy too and the original virus. The sauce from two thousand three is technically cold saws. Covy it's very difficult to talk about the two of them without getting confused and without muddling which solid you're talking about so yeah villages have found all kinds of hilariously colloquial work arounds calling the the first virus original saws are saws classic as if it was some kind of Soda Saws Right. And as we know the sodas get worse and worse as more of them get produced is how I feel so many levels. Okay so those spikes that the viruses used to attach to ourselves. Those spikes have to be activated and that activation happens more readily in this corona virus then the classic SARS or starts classic virus. It seems that way so The spike consists of two halls. Which must first be split apart for the virus to begin infecting a cell and that split happens with some difficulty with SARS classic but it seems to occur more readily with this new virus Because of the two halls can be separated by an enzyme called fewer in which is quite widespread in the human body right so much like an avocado that spike protein is really only ready to do its job. What's it's split in half and this corona virus can make use of protein in our body that is you know our bodies already naturally producing yes and make that cut for correct and thanks for ruining Avocados for me. Okay so basically that split seems to be happening easier in this corona virus then in the SARS coronavirus and that split is really important to activating the infection process correct. You also wrote about how this plays into a potential reason why the virus can spread between people before symptoms. Show Up. Talk to me about that. Right so in most respiratory viruses. You get infections in the. Upper Airways in which case symptoms of mild about the virus spreads more easily or you get infections in the Lower Airways in which case symptoms are more severe like pneumonia but the virus is harder to transmit. It seems that the new corona virus can infect both sites so perhaps it infects the Upper Airways causing mild symptoms and spreading easily before moving down into the lower airways and causing some of the more severe illnesses. We've seen in the worst covert nineteen cases. And maybe the reason it can do all those things is that it relies on this fear an enzyme which is found in lots of different tissue now. Of course. This is still conjecture. It's kind of if you look at it. It's a plausible story. It it makes sense checks out but it could also be completely wrong. Yeah this is actually kind of you know newer data. That's kind of interesting because I think initially we thought you know the majority of that infection is in the lower respiratory system right. That's very similar to SARS or the classic stars and now we're starting to get maybe some data that shows that that upper respiratory tract can be infected too. But like you said this is this is pretty preliminary stuff right. I keep reminding myself. This is a bias that no one knew about So we're really racing to understand it Even while we're also trying to control it absolutely absolutely. So let's talk about the animal origins of this virus. What we know now is potentially that the closest wild relative of this virus is found in bats. Is that right? Yeah that's right so there are millions perhaps billions of corona viruses out there another animals and all the ones that scientists have found so far. The one that most closely resembles ause covy to is one that is found in Bat. So it's likely that the virus originated in some kind of bat and eventually hopped into humans either directly or via andover intermediate species right and so that jump from an animal to us. There's there's a difference in what happened with this virus we think versus what happened with the original SARS virus. Is that correct. That's right yeah. One of virus enters new host. There's often a brief period of Acclamation a little span of time when it's mutating a baton and finding ways of better existing within that new type of body and that's what we saw with SARS classic. It took a little while before the virus became very good at infecting humans and doesn't seem to be the case with this new corona virus. It seems to have been a really good human pathogen right off the bat. Yeah so to speak. Yeah so basically SARS had to take another step before it was good and infecting us and regardless of where this virus came from as soon as it got into us it seems to be just kind of great at infecting human. It just seems like it was good to go from the off okay. So let's talk a little bit about you know the seasonality potentially of this virus. So what did the experts that you talk to say about? Whether or not. This outbreak will let up soon with the change of the seasons. So it's really hard to say and there are actually several papers out there now that seemed to come to differing conclusions about the seasonally questions. In general krona viruses do tend to infect people in the winter and they disappear in the summer because it's hotter and more humid. Now it's possible that this new corona virus will also behave in the same way and a lot of the people. I spoke to felt that sees a malady. Was Likely the problem is that the virus is now spreading through a global population of people who had no pre existing immunity to it. And it's just moving really easily from one person to another -nother the speed at which it's moving might be a little slower come The spring or summer but not enough to curtail the spread of the pandemic on its own One epidemiologist explained to me like this. It's as if the world is just full of tender and you've got this gigantic wildfire that's blazing through and hoping that seasonally will help is a bit like hoping that light rain is going to douse it. It might make it a little weaker but that fire still going to blaze

Why Does Hand Washing Beat Hand Sanitizer Hands Down?

"This episode is part of the miniseries. We're doing on some health and safety topics surrounding the novel type of coronavirus identified in two thousand nineteen which causes what is therefore being called covert nineteen because everything is a little less scary when you understand it better so you're probably aware that with the novel. Virus outbreak hand sanitizer has gotten very hard to find however soap seems to still be in good supply. This is a little counter intuitive given that to keep yourself safe from this virus the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend handwashing. I and using hand sanitizer only as a backup. If you don't have access to running water we spoke with Dr Greg Poland a representative for the Infectious Diseases site of America and professor of Medicine and Infectious Diseases at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota. He said proper hand washing is the safest most efficacious least expensive and readily available method to prevent disease. So why would plain old soap and water be more effective against germs than alcohol based hand sanitizer? Poland explained when you're physically washing your hands. You're doing three things. You're removing visible dirt and Mucus. You're using a soap that decreases surface tension. And you're physically by friction loosening removing and washing away. Whatever is on your hand. This includes germs that you can't see and is perhaps particularly effective at stopping the spread of some germs like Corona viruses because the outer casing of these germs is made up of Lipids. Which are fats just as soap can wedge itself down between particles of Greece on a dirty pan and help break it up? Molecules of soap can elbow into that lipid envelope around a microbe and break it apart. Thus rendering the microbe unable to attack and infect cells studies have shown that soap and water is more effective than hand sanitizer it removing certain viruses and bacteria that attack the intestines and respiratory tract corona viruses included and handwashing is especially effective for very dirty hands. Such as those. You get from gardening playing sports or wiping the runny nose with the back of your hand. Poland said if your hands are visibly soiled hand sanitizer can't get all the skins surfaces and if your hands have mucus on them hand sanitizer cannot penetrate remember. If you have the flu. For example influenza viruses will be present in your mucus. Several studies have shown that handwashing got rid of the flu virus from hands. Much faster than hand. Sanitizer did okay. So we've gone over why handwashing trump's hand sanitizing but in order for handwashing to work. You have to do it properly. You've probably seen a billion memes this week about how to do it but let's review the steps for everyone's sake. There are a whole bunch of times that people should be washing their hands but probably the most important are before you prepare or eat food after using the bathroom. And before you touch your face. Here's the protocol according to the CDC. I WHAT HANDS CLEAN RUNNING? Water warm or cold will do then turn off the tap and apply soap lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Any soap will work. It doesn't have to be antibacterial and remember antibacterial. Soap will help. Keep you safer from viruses than regular soap. Because they're different critters as you lather and rub make sure to get all the parts of your hands. The backs palms between the fingers and under fingernails. Start at your fingertips and work backward. Rub Your hands for at least twenty seconds. You Can Hummer Sing. Happy Birthday twice or some other diddy. If counting doesn't do it for you. The five seconds that most people take to wash their hands doesn't get as many microbes afterwards. Rinse your hands. Well under running water and dry them using a clean towel or with an air dryer. If you're in a public restroom it helps to use a paper towel to turn the faucet off and to open the bathroom door. A lot of publicity has gone into educating people that they're not washing for long enough but many are also missing the mark by not thoroughly rubbing all parts of the hand Polin said think of how we viruses bacteria etc into our body. It's with the area of the hand that nobody washes properly. That is the fingertips people. Wash the palm. They washed the back of their hands. They washed the bottom third of the fingers. But have you ever seen someone wash fingernails or tips so the next time you're washing up? Make a point to pay extra attention to these oft neglected appendages. There will be times though when hand? Sanitizer just makes more sense than handwashing. Let's say you were in the bathroom at your office. Followed all the steps outlined above. So now you have perfectly clean hands but wait. You need to open the door that leads from the hallway where the bathroom is back to your office. Dozens of people opening and closing that door all day. Applying dollop of hand sanitizer might be easier than washing your hands again. So here's the correct way to do that. I make sure you're applying enough about a quarter to a half dollar sized amount of him. Sanitizer is necessary. Rub It all the parts of your hand starting from the fingertips and working your way. Back to disinfect. And don't forget in between your fingers. Polin said keep doing that until it's dry that way you know you've had an exposure time for that disinfectant to kill resist the urge to wipe your hands on a paper towel or your pants to speed up the drying process since hand sanitizer and washing can be very drying. You might want to keep some hand lotion or cream nearby to apply once your hands are dry and just one more thing. Dr Poland has fielded questions from people who asked about using disinfecting wipes like those made by clorox or Lysol on their skin. As an added layer of protection he strongly advises people against this quote. Do not wipe your face clorox wipes do not clean your nose with it and do not suck on it. It DOES NOT HELP. It will harm you and it hurts. It offers no benefit

Your Coronavirus Questions Answered!

"We're going to dedicate at least this show if not a few shows to answering your questions. About Ron vires. Tiffany is going to be asking a question. She's sitting right over there. But not near me. Because we are actually acknowledging social distancing at this point so she's got to be what twelve feet fifteen feet away from me? I think south. That's the safest so she's answering your question asking your questions. I should say I'm answering your questions here. We go okay. So let's start with one of the most asked questions. What is the deal with insights? Should we avoid things? Like Ibuprofen for now just to be safe. So a lot of the concern about ends proof has to do with some studies that looked only viruses in the respiratory tract in general no non specifically with covert and some of those studies did show perhaps some associations that there might be some you know getting a little bit worse or having some side effects if you had a respiratory virus and took Ibuprofen. The best. I've seen was randomized controlled trial to give people basically Cnn medicine or I've appropriate or something like an aide or nothing or some combination and it found incredibly minimal differences. Tiny really tiny and so. I don't even know how much this is. This is old news. I mean this study is like a couple years old. It's not new. It is not cova specific and so everyone's concerned about this just seems a little more than we need right now. Okay so what's being said on twitter is the ICU. Physicians are saying that they've noticed a trend that people are worse off when they have been on. End said so again. I don't know that these are actually informal studies and that we actually know you're going to hear anecdotal reports but of course it's the anecdotal reports. That are GONNA make the most noise. I have not yet seen any conclusive data to push in that direction. So the rest of the questions. I've just tried to group. So this first group is going to be questions about social distancing and quarantine so this first one. Can you do things outside in suburban areas like? Walk your dog basketball with your family as long as you stay away from other people and then what about playing on an outdoor golf course. If there aren't a lot of people in your away from others going outside great. There's no reason to stay in the house. This is not like floating around the air but you WANNA follow the same rules with other people that you would follow him. The House like walking with the neighborhood friend who Stang more than six feet away is fine. Like don't get in the zone where they could call on you. Then you should be fine Playing basketball with the same people like your family that you are otherwise in the house with otherwise likely fine now playing basketball with people that are not part of your social isolation group is not okay really because then that's just like hanging out with them. That's what we're trying to avoid so being outside if you're following social dissing rules are is great being outside and close with people who otherwise close to his great but don't be outside with people you otherwise wouldn't be close to because that's just as dangerous being inside with them so. I think that also answers. The question. People wanted to know if kids could play together outside so if they are your kids from the same house yes with neighbors probably easy to say nobody should ever see anybody That's very difficult to hold down. So there's a couple of ways you could theoretically go about doing this. One is If you have a couple of families and you guys commit that like these are the families that are only seeing each other. You've socially isolated yourself and just a slightly larger group and they truly commit to that. That's pretty much okay. Secondly if you can agree to the same rules that I just said it's fine so we've told our our youngest daughter. She can have like one friend that she's designated over but they have to play by the same rules more than six feet away washing of hands. No sharing anything you know. They can play together like a video game or something but no making videos and foreign around. You gotTA respect those distances if kids can do that on play dates and they're old enough great if you're talking about small kids then again if you set up with like one or two families and say like Dr. Kids are just going to socialize with each other and nobody else and the families are not doing everything else. And You keep the group contained. Then that's probably so it's like that also addresses this question on. Should you refrain from having people over to your house? Same roles I'd say would apply if you like can identify one. We have sort of two families that we would consider. Perhaps let's say would you? Let's say two families that are best friends so it's just three families that if we say we're only doing our three families and nobody else probably okay the same way. I also said like I have a neighbor across the street as a friend of mine. I imagine You know he came over and wanted to sit and chat inside over there and I sat over here and we follow the same rules and good handwashing this really minimal risk there so you have to be smart about it but you want to keep to a minimum. I mean you really do. The part of this is Trying to keep social distance and of course if we go to serious quarantine in lockdown you should probably stop even that but we're not there quite yet okay and still keep all of this to groups. Wet less than ten. There's oh well I mean the president is CDC said. No group should be getting together larger than ten. I think that that's still too large. I mean it's just I would say like you know if you're getting together in a group of ten people unless you're committing to sit six feet apart a pretty large room and so I don't know how we're actually pulling that off now with our family. Read around the kitchen table. But that's because we're agreeing that's our social circle and if you live in a family of ten fine keep the ten people in House. Nobody's saying household but you probably shouldn't be inviting a random ten people over to your house at any time. That's not serving the purposes. It's very unlikely you're following the rules and keeping at least six feet apart from anybody else. How do you practice appropriate social distancing in places like grocery stores and pharmacies that you sometimes really need to go to so clearly of course you know all the usual rules apply in Washington Washington washing? Don't touch your face. Coffey elbow. Don't go if you're sick. Stay away from sick people. It's also better to go on off hours when fewer people are going to be there. It's better to avoid it when there's huge lines as much as possible. Keep your distance from other people. You know it's no we could spend in light stand in line like six feet apart. You know making sure. We're not sneezing or coughing on each other. I'm certainly the second Jordan. Wash your hands you know again and again and again when you unload the groceries wash your hands you know just constantly constantly constantly get used to making you short. You are clean and you've taken whatever might have gone off certainly before you touch your face certainly before you eat. Is it okay to volunteer places? Like food banks if you have no symptoms and use a mask. This is where I would talk to the Food Bank and find out there policy but again they're going to want to restrict it to his people as possible the whole goals. We don't want lots and lots of people coming into contact with each other so if they said we have a core of volunteers and these people are agreeing to go up and back to the Food Bank and not do anything. That would be ideal. Should we cancel all on critical doctor? Appointments in March may be an April on. This person. Said it feels like I should but I don't want to leave issues unresolved for potentially. I'm laughing at this question. Because I get asked this question about should I cancel ex by friends family and acquaintances all the time? And every single time my responses it's going to be cancelled anyway I think it's very unlikely that a lot of these optional appointments over the next few weeks certainly are going to stay in place. Be It a dental visit. A non emergent doctor visit A nail visit a haircut. Were heading towards probably much more strict isolation which case they get canceled. The trip matters yet. We probably should cancel them Because because they're just exposing us in ways that we probably don't need to next question should soon healthcare workers coming back from spring break allowed to continue work clinical rotations. Many are even after having traveled. I mean our medical school. Just shut down all third year rotations for medical school. And we're waiting to hear what they're doing on fourth year rotations. I think that's GonNa stop no matter. What because again. I think we're headed towards you. Know really only essential personnel should be exposed. And so I think this is one of those theoretical questions that people are asking. Now I think in a week will be moot. How can families of healthcare workers support their family working in healthcare? Well still helping contain the virus? So how do they keep their kids neighbors etc? Save when someone in the home is a doctor nurse. Paramedic getting lots of exposure enroll like. I've seen extremes on twitter. Were were doctors who know they're being exposed or like moving into the garage to protect your family which is just. I can't believe this is where we are But you know we. I think we're living in a world where I mean. Look as much as you can in a house practice good hygiene. Wash your hands. Stay away from people. Don't share stuff. My kids are all in high school. You know my oldest is in his room most of the time and so it's like it's not as hard pressed social isolation if you have if you have small children. It's much more difficult almost impossible. Let's own almost impossible But but doctors who were seriously being exposed need to take much care as possible to keep their family safe but it's going to be very hard. Should we bring parents home from CARE? Facilities Assuming no one in the homesick and then related to that. Should I get my elderly parents to my house from another state before things get worse if you're committing to true isolation liqu you're not GonNa Leave Your House and you can drive and get your parents so that you know they're not going to an airport. I guess it's theoretically possible that you could safely get them to you and then all commit to not leaving the house but you almost have to have the same rules that were advising the elderly at that point like it would be dangerous for you to go to the supermarket and then come home be near your elderly. Pats. You'd almost have to shutdown. That's been hard to do If they're in a nursing home or long term care facility I'd talk to the Nursing Home I don't know what safer to be honest whether to bring them home or not. Sometimes it's impossible. You just can't provide the care that they need which is why they were in a facility to begin with and of course once they're exposed. I'm not sure how much good it does to bring them out. So these are the kinds of incredibly hard. No good answer questions. That people are going to ask that are worth discussing. But I would do that. You your doctor or your parents doctor and the healthcare facility where they are. Is it safer to have your food delivered or to order food for pickup great question so I I suppose it depends on? How the pickup goes. Here's the thing there's there's not as there's really not much of an for transferring food as long as people are taking usual precautions and of course if you get delivery. They put the package down. Walk away you could open the door. Never be exposed to human being taken back to Washington to get to go no exposure. That's possible with pickup. But it's also possible you walk into pick up in their six other people wind to pick up the exact same moment and those are the kinds of exposures. Were trying to avoid okay and I feel like might be important to mention here that we should tip the people low. What I forget. You're only asked me a safety issue generous to everyone as humanly possible right now. We have canceled the people that help us clean the house. We're still paying them. And I say that. Not to Brag not too but it's like as much as you can help all the people that you can Because they are utterly dependent on a lot of the income. That is coming into completely. Cut IT OFF.

Dr. Rupali Chadha Reps and the Coronavirus

"Get right to the topic that's at the forefront of everyone's mind the corona virus or cove nineteen for anyone unaware of it. Why is it and what makes it different than say the flu or any of the other viruses that are floating around for you mentioned it the virus just like the flu maybe but it is a particularly Unique virus and that it is not a human to human virus it actually. I originated originated. Amel and then I've been transferred over to Cuban. What makes it unique? Are Pretty much three features? The first one is that It is much more infectious than the flows so infectious basically means eight. One person gets sick Gingrich. Many many more people than data flew Other unique differences are the symptoms that you experience the flu Lou. You get Malays get shells and you develop a fever. And all of that with Corona virus. People don't have chills body aches. Malays it will just develop achiever into the presentation is different in. Bosley and most alarming unfortunately is at the corona virus on leads to more deaths than the flu. So it is a much more serious virus that if the way Leads to rapid deterioration in a certain patient population. Which is what we're looking out for right now. What is what are the best practices that people can employ stay safe from the corona virus? The number one thing is to wash your hands so just open. Water for twenty seconds is good enough. Many people are very concerned about not having had that. There's a verdict but hand sanitizer it really useful which don't have been water for example winger puppy gapped but other than that. Both people can quickly get through banking. So is Your Hall Roy. Orange and that's really BA- keep yourself safe The other main brackets if to say separated from people as much as possible. The virus is transmitted just like the fluid grew droplets in the air or the virus. Live and then get onto those those for your hands and then into your body so if you keep away from people that will help a lot because you walk around the virus the beginning this is the two things hand washing and keep away from other people now. What are the most common symptoms? What are the things that people should look out for for themselves and others to spot? The Corona virus their car viruses immed- IT PRODUCER. Viduthalai costs and high fever. And those are the two main symptom that people get before they develop shortness of breath which kind of indicates that the viruses leading the upper respiratory track down to the lower respiratory tract and getting more serious now You know those are the main things but I wanna add. Say That many people don't have there's been done They have an loud chorus and not have any symptoms to speak of. But there is still contagious. They still have the virus. So that's why again this cracker says keeping yourselves. This is why our guardsmen restaurants are out that we can keep some separation from each other If we don't have been read all for him to our grandma she is at risk. And there you go now. She's going to have the symptoms. But if you do develop a dry cough and high fever It would be a good time to call your physician and we're advising people not to flood the emergency room unless they're really big Simply because of resources that we have available and also because we don't want yours become petri dishes where everyone is catches it from each other. Now we've heard a great deal about social distancing. Let's talk a little bit about why that is so important to help. Contain the spread of the virus. Even if you're not sick right now it's a great question because a lot of people are Crushing University of Shelter System which is forty six percents from other people as well as Dana. Home as much of your chance if your employer that can work from home. That doesn't mean that it's time to go to the pool color and it's time for stay at all and the reason is you know. Think of What happened with toilet paper so everybody needed to be bright or they thought they get toilet paper and they all went to the store and they all the toilet paper. Now it's gone. It's not that we don't have enough votes. They prefer all Americans effects that immediate post people running to the store and Diminish that availability. Same thing happens in healthcare. They're only so many hospital emergency room and reportedly physicians and nurses to take care of you. So if we're all out and Abou- and R- highly contagious buyer and we're willing Willie. Then our premiums that it'd be over flooded really have ventilators the country and unfortunately with this virus some people will require health and breeding is developed developed acute respiratory syndrome. So that you know big concerns. If you said you quote flatten the cutters. And I'm sure there will start to that heard of that term and that basically just need that. If you said on your limit your contact people are GonNa get sick at a slower rates. Go that way will have an emergency where DR versus an ICU. Ventilator available flow. Get RATHER THAN ALL AT ONE. Well put now as a doctor. You and the other healthcare workers are on the front line of treating patients. What are some of the challenges that you're facing right now and also? What are you preparing for moving forward in your your challenge for us right now If we have to be there they were going to be exposed. We need PD which is personal protective equipment and we don't have enough available Part of the issue is that a lot of people went out and bought the end. Ninety five mask or the glory with them from the hospital and took them home. That's part of the part of the problem. The other problem supply chain issue which had more to do with how little met in our healthcare industry get products to us and what kind of shortages they create. So you're not to get into that whole rabbit hole but we don't have enough personal protective equipment that the challenge Lucy. He'd also as I mentioned if that curve dozen flattened. We're just not going to be. There's going to be enough of US care of our view on the other side of that. How have you seen an uptick in healthcare workers? Coming Down with this so there isn't there has been talk. That healthcare workers are getting thicker.

How Long Does It Stay on Surfaces? How Long Can We Rely On Amazon Delivery?

"From the weekend. Our young ace symptomatic cases the key to spreading the virus. Should we rethink the conventional wisdom around facemasks? How long can the virus stay on surfaces? And how long can we rely on Amazon delivery? As of last night known cases of Corona virus in the United States exceeded thirty five hundred spread across forty nine states prompting the mass cancellation of and the reordering of American public life the CDC is recommending halting gatherings of fifty people or more throughout the US for the next eight weeks if implemented fully that means all sporting events all concerts all conferences. All parades all weddings. Almost everything done for eight weeks. Bars and restaurants are closed in New York City beginning tomorrow. Tuesday at nine. Am takeout and delivery orders? Only New York City schools have closed. Ohio has suggested schools might remain closed in that state for the remainder of the academic year but Ohio Massachusetts and Illinois have gone the France route as well. All bars and restaurants are shutting down statewide quote. Delay means more people will die Ohio governor. Mike DeWine said these states are the first states to take the steps toward Italy toward a complete shutdown of public activities except for food medicine and other essentials it is unlikely they will be the last the CEO of universal music group Lucian Grange.

Lvmh said figuring it's cosmetics division to only produce mass quantities of Hydro Alcoholic Gel in order to give it to French health authorities. More people have now died from the corona virus outside of China than have died inside China since the disease. I emerged airline Cathay. Pacific is adding flights from US cities and London to Hong Kong because since the disease seems to be relatively under control in Hong Kong at the moment some people are seeing Hong Kong as a safe haven and are rushing to travel there a mere seven weeks ago. Hong Kong had implemented travel restrictions because of its proximity to mainland China. Italy reported three hundred sixty eight deaths in a single day yesterday. A twenty five percent increase making this the deadliest twenty four hour period thus far worse than the deadliest day in Wuhan's outbreak. Italy has reported two hundred deaths for each of the last three days. Italy only had its first. Colonel Related Death three weeks ago now. More than eighteen hundred people have died because of overloaded hospitals. The fatality rate and Lamberti is nine percent in the rest of Italy. The fatality rate is five point one percent Spanish health authorities reported two thousand New Corona virus cases in twenty four hours on Sunday bringing the total in the country of Spain to eight thousand cases with two hundred eighty eight deaths as the number of people who have died of the virus more than doubled in twenty four hours as the Spanish death. Toll was up from one hundred thirty six a day earlier. That is an increase of almost one hundred percent. Spain is clearly on. The Italian trajectory is France. Next it certainly seems to be going that way quoting the New York Times. France announced the closing of all non indispensable businesses including restaurants bars and movie theaters after a sharp uptick in corona virus cases. The number of French cases past five thousand four hundred twenty on Sunday with one hundred and twenty seven deaths on Saturday. Three hundred corona virus patients were in critical condition half of them under sixty years of age on Sunday. Francis Transportation Minister said the country would begin reducing plane train and bus services between cities and quote. I'd like to end the segment with some potentially good news from Italy Adrenal Aguzzi. A professor of neuro pathology and Switzerland just north of the troubled Italian region of Lombardy tweeted a chart this weekend that showed that even with the surge in deaths in Italy over the last few days the death rate is deviating ever so slightly from exponential growth. It's early days. But the lockdown might be beginning to work linked to the chart. I'm referencing in the show. Notes and Chen He wa. The European Bureau chief for China Daily tweeted this quote. Just read that Chinese medical team sent to Italy to fight Kovic nineteen comprises mostly experienced doctors from Sichuan Sichuan folks still remember how an Italian rescue team during the devastating. Two Thousand Eight Wenchuan earthquake saved many lives. The world needs more of US helping each other and quote. There has been a lot of justified. I think hand-wringing about the scenes of people going to bars and restaurants even to Disney world. This weekend seemingly unworried about anything that is going on. This is obviously a problem for one. Big reason potential transmission from people who might not know they already have the disease indeed. There is increasing evidence that it is young people people without symptoms that might be the key driver of the spread of Corona Virus. Even more so than we realized quoting. Cnn New Studies in several countries and a large corona virus outbreak in Massachusetts Bring into question reassuring assertions by US officials about the way the novel virus spreads it appears that a Massachusetts Corona virus cluster. With at least eighty two cases was started by people who are not yet showing symptoms and more than a half dozen studies have shown that people without symptoms are causing substantial amounts of infection several experts interviewed by CNN. Said while it's unclear. Exactly what percentage of the transmission in the outbreak is fueled by people who are obviously sick versus those who have no symptoms or very mild symptoms? It is becoming clear that transmission by people who are as symptomatic or mildly symptomatic is responsible for more transmission than previously thought and quote. Indeed scientists seem to be coming to the conclusion that this is what makes corona virus so insidious it can spread far before it even sickens both mergers and SARS tend to be only spread by symptomatic people. But if you get cova did you might have spread it to fifty other people before you even know it. Add to that what we've previously discussed about how scientists suspect that you're more contagious earlier. On in the disease in a study of twenty four passengers who had just flown from Israel seven tested positive for corona virus of which four had no symptoms and the viral load of specimens from a symptomatic patients was higher than from the three patients. Who had symptoms thus the global move toward social distancing? Stay home stay out of large crowds status small crowds. There's a link to chart in the show notes that shows the difference between two towns in Italy. The two are Bergamo and loyalty. Loyalty actually had the first cove in nineteen case reported before Bergamo reported. Its first but Loki. Shut down their town February. Twenty Third Burgum. Oh waited until almost a week later by March thirteenth lucky only had around a thousand cases of corona virus and those case numbers seem to be leveling out while Burgum oh has seen case numbers shoot up to two thousand five hundred and young people. I'm talking to you. Data from South Korea where they test everyone they can is suggesting that. Thirty percent of the carriers in that country where aged twenty to twenty nine. If that's not enough to convince you let me point you to an actual animation. It is literally just balls. Dancing around and environment randomly representing infections over time. Look at what happens to the infection curve when only a quarter of a population continues to circulate and three quarters of a population practice social distancing. The infection rate is significantly slowed and with extensive distancing with seven eighths of a population staying home. The infection curve is stopped almost in its tracks. These are powerful animations but they are only animations only simulations made to educate on a concept. The concept is however. This is joke. If you can stay home let me quote. The last paragraph from the story accompanying the simulation quote in one crucial respect. These simulations are nothing like reality. Unlike simulations cove nineteen can kill though. The fatality rate is not precisely known. It is clear that the elderly members of our community are most at risk from dying from covered. One thousand nine hundred quote if you want this to be more realistic. A scientist was quoted after seeing a preview of the story some of the DOTS should disappear and quote link to the simulation is of course in the show. Notes questions are being raised as to whether or not more of US should be wearing face masks. Even if we're not showing signs of corona virus infection authorities in China already mandate the wearing of masks in all public places whether or not people are sick or healthy quoting from ink stone since late January Chinese authorities and major cities have enforced rules on wearing face masks in public spaces including detaining. Those who tried to use public transport without a mask and quote in South Korea and Japan is also required. That mask be worn by healthy people in crowded places but in much of the rest of the world including here in the US. It's advised that only people displaying symptoms should wear masks as just mentioned the possibility that corona virus can be spread by a symptomatic. People is causing some to argue for more widespread use of masks quoting again from ink stone. A symptomatic transmission has been reported in multiple countries in which a spreader is responsible for sickening others without knowing it in January at cluster. Thirteen infections was believed to have started with a British man who contracted the virus during a trip to Singapore and spread it to others on a skiing trip in the French Alps and back home in the United Kingdom all the while showing no signs of infection himself quote researchers writing in the Lancet suggested that in light of this current national advice may need updating to deal specifically with Ron Virus quoting from the peace. If everyone puts on a mask in public spaces it would help to remove stigmatization that has hitherto discouraged masking of symptomatic patients in many places. Furthermore transmission from asymmetric infected individuals has been documented for Kobe. Nineteen and viral load is particularly high at early disease. Stage masking as a public health intervention would probably intercept the transmission link and prevent these apparently healthy infectious sources and quote. All of that said as of right now. The advice remains to only wear a mask if you are displaying symptoms helping to conserve the mask as a resource masks are in short supply and are needed for medical practitioners. Who them more than the rest of us. In order to safely treat people not get sick themselves and thus stay on the job. A new study has revealed the length of time that Kobe nineteen can remain viable on common surfaces. The study so new that it is yet to be. Peer reviewed found that Corona virus was most stable on plastic and stainless steel with viable virus being detected up to seventy two hours on those surfaces after application it can also remain viable for up to twenty four hours on cardboard and up to four hours on copper. The researchers noted that these decay timings were similar to those found with the two thousand and two two thousand. Three SARS virus suggesting that quote differences in the epidemiology of these viruses likely arise from other factors including high viral loads in the upper respiratory tract and the potential for individuals infected with cove nineteen to shed and transmit the virus while a symptom matic and quote. There are presently two hundred and seventy four surface disinfectants approved by the EPA for use against Kovic Nineteen Link to the list is in the show notes at this point with store shelves increasingly bear. I'm sure a lot of us are continuing to rely on delivery especially Amazon prime delivery to keep ourselves stocked up with everything we need so that we can shelter in place. Avoid going out to stores as much as possible and just generally socially distance well an article and vices motherboard talking about the broader strains to workers in the sorting facilities and also the people who have to deliver our stuff makes the point that maybe our delivery systems are endangered as well quote. Motherboards spoke to Amazon Logistics Labor experts. Who say it's only a matter of time? Before Amazon's prime signature two day delivery promise serious delays mistakes and widespread shortages due to increased demands from consumers also pressure on workers to meet rising production quotas restrictions on trade and the possibility of fulfillment centers being. Shut DOWN AS CORONA VIRUS SPREADS. Amazon's warehouse workers. Say they're already seeing increased workloads while fewer of their colleagues are showing up to work. According Labor organizers already Amazon's white collar workers have been asked to work from home. But that's obviously not an option for warehouse fulfillment workers and delivery drivers quote. It seems really likely that. Amazon's prime delivery system will falter Daniel flaming president of Economic Roundtable and an author of the two thousand nineteen report on Amazon's economic impact on southern California told motherboard. One day deliveries may not be made within one day if the workers who do show up to warehouses are more stress given bigger routes and are possibly less experienced incorrect deliveries will be made. The last mile segment of the delivery is very labor intensive and quote flaming ads. That were likely to see a close parallel of what happens in Amazon warehouses. During the holiday rush increase delays mistakes and bottlenecks. It would seem to me. Most likely that we'll see a drop in reliability and timeliness and quote but more than that the fear here is the same with the health system basically if too many people involved in the Amazon delivery chain are even temporarily sidelined by the disease at the same time. It's possible that even Amazon delivery could go down to say nothing of the potential disruption to the supply chain I e if even Amazon can't source enough goods to

Myth-Busting Coronavirus

"Heard some crazy things this week and I'm sure you've all been hearing things from friends on social media and even on mainstream media as a result there's a lot of information and misinformation out there. Let's walk through some of the biggest myths and give you the facts number one drinking water every fifteen minutes will flush out the virus and keep you safe. This is false. There are many home remedies doing the rounds drinking water or taking garlic for vitamin C. But there is no evidence that any of these in any quantity will protect you from the novel. Corona virus there is currently no cure and while research is underway. It could be more than a year before a vaccine becomes available. The best way to protect yourself is to practice good hygiene wash. Your hands often was open water for at least twenty seconds. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough and seek treatment. If you're not feeling well. These aren't myths and they really work number. Two Corona viruses man made and was developed as a biological weapon as the corona virus spiraled into a public health crisis in China. A fringe theory started to take hold on the Internet that the virus was man made in a lab. There is no credible information to back this up and the posts mostly come from unverified social media accounts scientists in both China and the West have widely dismissed these theories although that hasn't stopped them from spreading experts are still trying to figure out the exact source of the virus but research indicates that likely originated in bats then to an intermediate host before jumping to people just like the virus that caused the two thousand. Three SARS epidemic number. Three heat can kill the virus by April or during the month of April. The heat generally speaking kills this kind of virus so that would be a good thing president. Donald Trump has previously suggested. That heat kills the virus and that it would be over by spring but public health experts. Say there's no way to know this for sure. People have taken this idea to the extreme using hairdryers hot bats and UV LAMPS. To try and disinfect themselves. The World Health Organization has said these methods are ineffective and shouldn't be used as they can actually irritates your skin or just burn you. We do see cases of flu decree says the weather gets warmer and there are several theories. Why some point to the physics of the virus itself other point to the fact that kids major transmitters of the flu aren't in school anymore. We are seeing cases of the corona virus currently spreading in hot countries on Wednesday. Hollywood actor Tom. Hanks confirmed he had the virus and he's in Australia where summer just ended temperatures there remain around sixty degrees. Fahrenheit. Of course there is no way to know where Tom Hanks actually contracted the infection. And there's also no way to know for sure what role heat or humidity have to play here number four. The virus can be spread through mail or packages from China. It's new strain of corona virus. Has Many people asking questions like is it safe to open mail from overseas getting a letter from China or any country? That has corona virus. Cases is not going to make you sick. The World Health Organization agrees even though the virus can stay on surfaces for several hours. It has to be under the perfect conditions. It is unlikely that it will live after being moved traveled and exposed to different temperatures. If you do think a surface packages contaminated simply use a disinfectant to clean it and after touching it. Wash your own hands with soap and water number five. Everyone who has corona virus will die. This is simply not true. The disease can be fatal but those cases are rare the current fatality rate globally according to the WHO is around three to four percent but there are experts who believe it is actually much closer to one percent people who get infected will typically get sick with a mild to moderate upper respiratory tract illness similar to a common cold symptoms include cough sore throat headache and fever that lasts a few days most of the time for healthy people. The symptoms go away on their own people who have underlying health conditions or those who are older do need to take extra precautions but with an early diagnosis and the right treatment. They too can recover. The key right now is to stop the virus from spreading and for all our health institutions to be prepared to test people and treat those who need it. The bottom line is don't believe every piece of information you read on the Internet. Some of the rumors out there are ridiculous. Let me be clear. The novel Corona virus can infect anyone regardless of age or ethnicity so. Check the source of the information. You're getting see who else can corroborate it. And if you're ever unsure check with a health professional can give you the correct guidance on. What's best for you?

Feel the flu coming on? Stay away from your cat.

"The flu is raging from the east coast to the west coast in New York City. Eight thousand cases were reported in just one day. Humans aren't the only ones at risk. Flu infection in cats, and dogs may be much more common than you thought. Bad news for sure, but it's it gets worse. Research is reporting that our pets can be catching the illness from their owners dog seem to be relatively safe from the human strains, but a cat can catch a cold or the flu from you the virus attached to the cells in the respiratory tract, a feline similarly to how it doesn't human says, Scott we that Canada research chair in zoonotic diseases and the associate professor at the veterinary college one study, you can't blood samples found about thirty percent of canton, Ohio have been affected with seasonal flu. And twenty percent had been infected with the h one n one flu strain that causes the two thousand nine pandemic. Studies also suggest that there have been an increase in cat flu infection since two thousand nine cats. Also, get cat to cat, viruses that are similar to a cold. Humans. Can't catch those. There's no concern with donkey human human to dog. Transmission says we dogs get viruses from each other. If we have a pet. It's also a good idea to wash your hands often, especially after contact avoid exposure from the pet saliva to your mucous membranes such as your nose and mouth or broken skin. If a pet is under the weather keep him away from family members that weakened immune systems such as pregnant women, and the elderly some experts say you should never let pets sleep in your bed, especially under the covers animals infected with the flu developed symptoms similar to those humans, including breathing problems or runny nose or eyes and fatigue to protect pets. Christine lower and associate professor at Oregon state university's college veterinary medicine suggests that owners get the seasonal flu shot which will. Use the chances of catching flu in spreading it to others post people and pets people who become sick with the flu should take the same precautions with their pets as they would with other people such as minimizing contact with them. If your pet is sick help him feel better by regularly cleaning his area, food and water bowls and where he sleeps. And in case of cats changing the litter box often, let him rest and be sure to supply lots of water if you stuffed up a humidifier may help him breathe easier suggest the American veterinary medical association, if you're worried have your bet do a physical exam, he or she may suggest diagnostic tests, such as culture or blood count and says we tell your physician if your pet is sick and you become ill. Even if the symptoms don't seem related it could help him or her diagnose and treat you and eventually you can treat your pet. You're listening to talkin

I got to make the actual capsules, the medication we called it, and you would roll it in either g. or raw Honey. And we use g or Honey as a delivery method to actually get these things into the body in to a deeper level. So that was pretty amazing. And then you would use Bosque which is an enema again, a Medicated enema. We would use herbs to remove waste from the colon. So is it was like a symphony. We would remove it from the upper respiratory tract, which is called Kopf, oh, like the Endo Morphing type. The heavier body type pet is in the liver. So we would release those toxins and bile down into the colon.

We would use other things too because we check in with the patients on a daily basis, and if they weren't getting the results that we wanted, we increased dosage and we're able to do that until we got the at least three bowel movements per day because it's very important as you're releasing toxins. So we were also. So when we had people on this special diet, we are also oxidizing body fat. A lot of people came in these clinics to lose weight as well. So when they're there and your oxidizing body fat, we have to keep in mind that body fat adipose. Tissue is about three hundred times more toxic than your blood, meaning that your body does a really good job when toxins come into the blood at store them in adipose tissue that adipose tissue can swell. And that's why a lot of people. Sure they're overweight, but their body is swollen. They looked puffy and that's because those fat cells are also holding talks and with that comes water as well. So. So we're oxidizing body fat. The toxins are coming to the blood. They're moving to deliver, hopefully not as much in the kidneys, and then we're then eliminating those into the colon than into obviously the toilet. There's this try failure.

I got to make the actual capsules, the medication we called it, and you would roll it in either g. or raw Honey. And we use g or Honey as a delivery method to actually get these things into the body in to a deeper level. So that was pretty amazing. And then you would use Bosque which is an enema again, a Medicated enema. We would use herbs to remove waste from the colon. So is it was like a symphony. We would remove it from the upper respiratory tract, which is called Kopf, oh, like the Endo Morphing type. The heavier body type pet is in the liver. So we would release those toxins and bile down into the colon. And the colon then is reserved for vodka, and we would release all the toxins that were dumped in the colon than into obviously a toilet. Now, the last part is, is the facial area and the facial area has to do something called nausea and nausea is an amazing treatment for people with Alex cameras, slow you down again, man, sleigh down again this this very. Chana where you induce multiple bowel movements in the form of loose stool. How're you doing that? So we're using products such as trip loved. So triple of is one of the mainstays they would use now. We would use other things too because we check in with the patients on a daily basis, and if they weren't getting the results that we wanted, we increased dosage and we're able to do that until we got the at least three bowel movements per day because it's very important as you're releasing toxins. So we were also. So when we had people on this special diet, we are also oxidizing body fat. A lot of people came in these clinics to lose weight as well. So when they're there and your oxidizing body fat, we have to keep in mind that body fat adipose. Tissue is about three hundred times more toxic than your blood, meaning that your body does a really good job when toxins come into the blood at store them in adipose tissue that adipose tissue can swell. And that's why a lot of people. Sure they're overweight, but their body is swollen. They looked puffy and that's because those fat cells are also holding talks and with that comes water as well. So. So we're oxidizing body fat. The toxins are coming to the blood. They're moving to deliver, hopefully not as much in the kidneys, and then we're then eliminating those into the colon than into obviously the toilet. There's this try failure. Herbs is something you just take right before induces bowel movement. You take the night before or how does it work. So triple is a very gentle accident and t. r. a. t. r. i. p. h. a. l. a. okay.
